Clancy/Fogarty Family

Greetings!

I am traveling to Ireland at the tail end of the year and was very interested in stopping into the parish and town my ancestors were from. I located a marriage record on findmypast.ie of my 4th great grandmother Bridget Fogarty (Curraghbawen) marrying Patk Clancy (Coumebeg) at the Parish of Youghal on April 27, 1828. Findmypast.ie refers to this church as Youghal Arra which led me to this site. I’d love to find out if I am on the right track and any information you can provide. Thank you!

Kindly,

Laura

  • Welcome Laura!

    www.rootsireland.ie/ has the marriage record also but it doesn't give their ages or the parents' names unfortunately.

    Date of Marriage:27-Apr-1828
    Parish / District:YOUGHALARRA
    County:Co. Tipperary
    Husband PatrickClancy Address:Coomebeg Denomination:Roman Catholic
    Wife Bridget Fogarty Curraghbawen Roman Catholic

    The Tithe Applotments (free online) have 49 Clancys in Tipperary 1825-34 & 337 Fogartys but I couldn't find them in the places listed on the marriage

    The earliest Irish Census that Tipperary records are in is 1851 but there are no records of either surname in it I'm afraid

    The National Library of Ireland has made the RC registers freely available online (registers.nli.ie/) and has Youghal Arramarriages & baptisms 1828-81 

    Annoyingly rootsireland does not have Youghalarra burial records!

    Thank you Col!

    I believe I read that Patrick Clancy died rather shortly after their marriage, and Bridget did not remarry until she emigrated to the United States with her daughter Anne, who is my 3rd great grandmother. Do you know of any resource that may help me find his burial location? Also, is the parish they were wed still standing and open for viewing? Thank you!

    Kindly,

    Laura

  • Laura I'm not a Youghalarra expert so hopefully one of the Youghalarra people will assist you from here.

  • Hi Laura.

    You will find  headstone inscriptions for Youghalarra   under Tipperary studies digitasion  project.

    You will find inscriptions for other graveyards in the area as well.

    Best of luck, let me know how you get on.

    Christina.

  • Dear Laura31:

     

    You might also check in with the Parish Priest in Youghalarra, Fr. Tim O'Brien who is a great local historian.  I can give you his details if you email me directly at:  jhalloranryan@Irelandxo.com.

     

    Kind regards,

     

    Jane.

  • Another place to look is in the estate records for the Parker-Hutchinson family, who were the landlords in most of the parish, located at the National Library of Ireland in Dublin.  When the family wound up their landholdings, they donated the records to the NLI.  The records are not indexed and are more than a bit of a mess.  I found some dating before 1776 as well as some early 1800s land leases (which they quaintly called indentures or similar).  It was a bit of a needle in a haystack situation.
